I just finished installing cedet, and wanted to post feedback on how it
went. I've got a few years linux/programming experience, I know enough to
know that I have gaping holes in my knowledge.
Anyways, the install went MUCH smoother than I expected. I have only a few
1) I had to google separately to find the cvs instructions for checking out
cedet, because I have always used svn rather than cvs. You may consider
including a simple link to
page <http://cedet.sourceforge.net/> perhaps under "Install and configure
CEDET" or "Downloading CEDET" but of course this is up to you. I would have
found it convenient.
2) The "make" went clean the first time on Ubuntu 11.04. However, "make
install-info" did not... for 2 reasons. The first is that my
/usr/local/share/ requires root access, and I personally avoid "sudo make X"
if ever possible. The second snag was that I didn't have an "info"
directory and the makefile did not make one for me... instead it created an
empty "info" file and then threw an error for each call to ginstall-info. I
was, of course, able to fix by manually creating the directory then "sudo
make install-info" (after checking out the makefile manually)
Overall, I was VERY impressed with the smoothness of the install, and hope
my learning/usage goes just as well! GREAT WORK!
